For the first time it looks like we may get a big enough Christmas crop that the birds dont get them all!
The biggest problem we have out here at Canowindra, is getting the figs to market fresh and cold, and fully ripened. As we love eating fresh figs ourselves we cant bear to pick them early for extended shelf – its just such a waste of all that potential deliciousness! There are refrigerated trucks going from Orange to Sydney, but we’re an hours drive from Orange.
Maybe the best way for now is if you, if you are local and also a lover of figs, were to place an advance order or expression of interest for a tray of figs, before harvest is upon us, and then we can do our best to get them directly to you. Who knows, we might have a tray of figs at your door at Christmas!
At this stage, we’ll focus on the local area of Canowindra and Cowra, but if you’re from Orange, Bathurst or even Sydney we can still try to get some to you – we just have to figure out how when the time comes.
They’re about a dollar per fig, depending on the grade and size…To let us know you are interested, just send us an email
